sent them all emails, as well as SIC.

but nothing in their catalogs.

the bit that makes it quirky is having a center detent and momentary switch...  i can find one or the other not both.

What is wrong with the one you have?

Do you just need an extra one?

What product/manufacturer uses the pot?

If it is a home project you could probably rebuild one out of the two from the same manufacturer. Worst case.

Its from a Saitek X55 Throttle unit.

I dont own one :)

I am trying to built my own Custom Joystick and switch Panels for Flightsims, and found these would be ideal as they control an Axis and a button all in one which would be great for trim settings.

regards

It will depend on the exact design and mechanical skills both, but yes.

Buying a spare from Saitek could be an option also.

Had you thought of pulling a pot out of a failed Saitek X55?
